We enter your sacred prayer space, seeking good, not evil. We try not to fear the fate of those who choose evil over good, but it is so apparent in your word and in human experiences all around us. We have run to religion with the expectation we will find what we are looking for. Sometimes we catch ourselves worshipping religion instead of you, but we find you only when we learn to worship you completely.
Ninth Week after Pentecost, Saturday, August 13, 2022
Today, we invite you to reread, rest and reflect on the prayers of the past week.
Lectionary Readings for Today:
1 Samuel 6:1-16
Thank you for this precious sacred time with you today. We join Mary to sing praise to you. Thank you loving Yahweh for your mindfulness of us. Thank you for your mercy and providing the best of the best for us. Your goodness and faithfulness endure forever and ever.
We enter your sacred prayer space as inhabitants of your Holy City. You greet us as we enter and proclaim to us, “You are not only inhabitants; you are residents. Even more, you are key-holders, and heirs of all that is seen and unseen. It is already done; there is nothing you need to do to earn my inheritance.”
How majestic it is to hear people from all nations and every language worshipping you. Though we are many, we are one. Praise to you, Oh Ancient of Days.
